Fucothin: All Natural Revolutionary Weight Loss Pill
FÃ¼coTHIN is a natural, whole food based supplement that is made with a proprietary concentration of fucoxanthin combined with pomegranate seed oil, for a patent-pending formula that is naturally thermogenic. FÃ¼coTHIN has been studied by leading scientists for many years and is the only formula that has human clinical research to confirm its thermogenic effect. Thermogenesis is the process by which the body increases its metabolic rate, requiring utilization of internal stores of energy, such as fat. FÃ¼coTHIN supports the metabolism or breakdown of fat in white adipose tissue, including belly fat. FÃ¼coTHIN does not stimulate the central nervous system and will not cause jitters or lost sleep.
The Science Behind Fucoxanthin
Fucoxanthin is a naturally occurring brown pigment that belongs to the class of non-provitamin A carotenoids. Carotenoids are 40-carbon organic molecules that consist of two groups: xanthophylls if their structure contains oxygen, and carotenes if there is no oxygen in their chemical formula. Fucoxanthin is a xanthophyll whose distinct structure includes a simple sugar fucose and an unusual allenic bond.
Fucoxanthin is typically found in the chloroplasts of brown seaweed, giving them a brown or olive-green color. Seaweed is a group of multicellular marine organisms that obtain energy via photosynthesis. Although often referred to as â€œmarine plantsâ€ because of their ability to conduct photosynthesis, seaweed species are not classified as plants. They are closer to cyanobacteria (unicellular algae) than to plants, including marine plants such as seagrass. In general, there are three major types of seeweed: green, red and brown (the latter is a source of fucoxanthin).
Similar to other carotenoids, fucoxanthin possesses antioxidative properties. The difference, however is that fucoxanthin acts as an antioxidant under anoxic conditions whereas other carotenoids have practically no quenching abilities. Most tissues under physiological conditions have low oxygen presence. Furthermore, the typical antioxidants are usually proton donors (ascorbic acid, Î±-tocopherol, glutathione). Fucoxanthin, on the other hand, donates electron as a part of its free-radical quenching function. A combination of these distinct properties is very rarely found among naturally occurring food-derived compounds.
In addition to its unique antioxidant properties, fucoxanthin has been shown to affect mammalian nuclear DNA in such a way that it results in upregulation of uncoupling protein-1 (UCP-1) production within the cells, particularly adipose tissue, both brown and white.
UCP-1 is a member of a family of uncoupling proteins that occurs in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Up to date, five different isomers have been described, 1 through 5. Presence of UCP isomers have been established in various tissues: brown adipose tissue (BAT), white adipose tissue (WAT), skeletal muscle, and brain (UCP4 and UCP5 only). UCP-1 was originally given the name thermogenin for its ability to induce thermogenesis.
